-- have done in the past in pension and tax and mechanics. can you sort of help explain some of the healthcamechanics a they're different. >> i may yield some of this question to ms. walker. the mechanics are different simply because employers have not done this in the past unless they've offered their retirement plan. in many cases unless they're operating under a safe harbor they may not have done the analysis. in terms of what we're seeing in actual real life, i know there's been discussion of jobs creation and whether employers are hiring or not hiring. i would caution you on the statistics that you hear and answers to surveys. because i know that many of our clients will not answer that question because they have seen the fallout in the industry, whether it's restaurants or other industries, from answering and addressing questions like that. so i don't believe that you're getting a complete picture. >> mr. chairman, one day that might be a complete different hearing. because we had that happen once in arizona where some voluntary surveys that were filled out turned out t

on taxing some down. >> why do you think republicans seem so fixated on the government reliance narrative and this tax and spend. this tax and spend phrase that they of the to use over and over again? >> that's the only message that they've been able to promote, and i think a lot of the republican message has been similar to mitt romney's 47% comments and it's a problem for republicans because they spend the majority of the time since the 2012 elections trying to cut food stamps and we also know they oppose a minimum wage hike with respect to sequestration and they expressed concerns over the cuts and they've disproportionately impacted on those relying on headstart and meals on wheels and the rnc had come up with the 2012 autopsy report and it urged republicans to reach out to the poor and not simply be the party of the wealthiest americans and come up with policies that would actually lift americans out of poverty and they continued to push this anti-obama agenda and that's why they're reframing the debate around the economy because they know that's a winning issue for them and republic

prominent, taxes were slashed for the wealthiest, while investments in things that make us all richer, like schools and infrastructure, were allowed to wither. and for a certain period of time, we could ignore this weakening economic foundation, in part because more families were relying on two earners as women entered the workforce. we took on more debt financed by a juiced-up housing market. but when the music stopped, and the crisis hit, millions of families were stripped of whatever cushion they had left. and the result is an economy that's become profoundly unequal, and families that are more insecure. i'll just give you a few statistics. since 1979, when i graduated from high school, our productivity is up by more than 90%, but the income of the typical family has increased by less than 8%. since 1979, our economy has more than doubled in size, but most of that growth has flowed to a fortunate few. the top 10% no longer takes in one-third of our income -- it now takes half. whereas in the past, the average ceo made about 20 to 30 times the income of the average worker, today's ceo now
